hi I'm Ben McIntyre and this is what I'm reading Nanci Mitford's the pursuit of love it's a novel about being brought up in the countryside by a truly eccentric aristocratic English family it's fictional but it's closely based on Mitford's own life as one of the enormous clan of Mitford's and almost every page has a seriously good joke on it Christopher Andrew the secret world a history of intelligence this is Professor Christopher Andrews compendious on the entire history of espionage going back to classical times and right up to the present day it contains every episode of real importance in the spy history and if it's not there it probably wasn't that important I'm rereading Truman Capote's in cold blood this was an inspirational book for me which I read probably about once every three years it was really the first nonfiction novel it showed that you can take real events and weave them into a narrative in a way that reads just like a novel we've discovered that Truman Capote used certain liberties while writing it but nonetheless it's always been an inspiration to me
